Archbishop Tutu Leadership Fellowship Programme 2017

Archbishop Tutu Leadership Fellowship Programme 2017

Deadline: January 15, 2017

As the African Leadership Institute’s flagship leadership development programme, the Tutu Leadership Fellowship Programme welcomes an elite group of Africa’s highest potential young leaders, representing a wide range of sectors. Offered on a part-time basis over six months, the Programme includes two 9-day Group Learning Modules with an impressive array of distinguished leaders and faculty. These are intensive interactive workshops; one at the historic Mont Fleur conference facility (South Africa), and the other split between Oxford University and London (UK).

Upon completing the Programme, Tutu Fellows return to play active roles in their respective communities, countries and spheres of influence. Great value is placed upon becoming a member of an established exclusive and supportive network of Africa’s future leaders – the Tutu Fellows. As part of this network of global leaders, all Fellows are expected to attend AFLI alumni events, as well as function as ambassadors for the Fellowship across all segments of society.


  • Open to young leaders in Africa;
  • AFLI emphasizes integrity, strong values and responsibility, courage and a demonstrated ability to lead and inspire;
  • A candidate must demonstrate a commitment to Africa and to serving the greater community. They seek leaders not managers.

Application Process

  • Only once candidates have been nominated, may they submit an application to AFLI.
